    High bowed string instruments?

    Struttura didattica: lezioni individuali di strumento e lezioni di gruppo - su repertorio orchestrale, lirico, sinfonico, cameristico e solistico – per: flauto, oboe, clarinetto, fagotto, corno, tromba, trombone, violino, viola, violoncello e contrabbasso, organizzati in classi di archi chiari, archi scuri, legni, ottoni.


    Didactic structure: individual instrumental lessons and group lessons - on a repertoire involving orchestral, operatic, symphonic, chamber and solo pieces - for: flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello and double bass, organized into classes of high bowed string instruments, low bowed string instruments, woodwinds, brass

    My translation of "archi scuri" is just a guess, by the way.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    Hi Cephas!

    My suggestion is as follows: "clear strings, dark strings".

    Please check it googling.

    Bye,

    Ciao Cephasin,
    siccome "chiari" e "scuri" si riferisce al suono, ho trovato che "low strings" viene riferito a contrabbasso e violoncello, mentre "high strings" sono violino e viola. Vedi qui http://cnx.org/content/m24888/latest/ Violin: high
    Viola: relatively high
    Cello: relatively low
    Double bass: low
